Birthday Giveaway Two!-CLOSED

I'm pretty sure that's what I was saying in this photo, and look! I'm having flashback bangs just like those!
The next giveaway is for an Oliver + S pattern, one of my favorites to work with because they are thoroughly thought through (say that 10 times fast).  I recommend the easy Oliver + S patterns to beginners because they are easy to follow and then you can move on to the more difficult ones once you get the basics down.

The winner gets to choose from the digital patterns collection, so you don't even need to wait for the postman, drumming your fingers until you get your hands on it. These three cuties were just added to their digital collection!

  4. Happy, happy birthday!

    I've always wanted to try an Oliver + S pattern because they are so beautiful. I figured they'd be way to complicated for a just-wing-it seamstress like me. Good to know that even I could pull one off! :)
